Ernest Shackleton Loves Me is the critically acclaimed new musical with a tongue-in-cheek script by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro+ (Memphis).

Inspired by her music, he shares his epic Antarctic journey with her in video and song. Together, they conquer the odds in a timeless love affair for the ages. Awarded 2017 Best New Musical by the Off Broadway Alliance.
